Braves Put O'Flaherty On DL, Call Up Mike Dunn

Talking Chop has the scoop on the Braves’ other big transaction today (the first being that Jason Heyward was activated from the disabled list):

Eric O’Flaherty was placed on the 15-day DL with a viral infection that has been bothering him for days. It’s not confirmed, but I can only imagine it’ll be retro-active to July 9th.

In his place, the Braves called up fellow left-handed reliever Mike Dunn, who was acquired from the Yankees in the Javier Vazquez trade before the season. In 33 games at Triple-A Gwinnett, Dunn had a sparkling ERA of 1.05 and recorded 7 saves. He struck out 56 hitters and walked 22 in 42.2 innings.

Dunn will be available for tonight’s game against the Brewers.
